Thanks! Is there anything you'd change? or anything you'd like to see? It's still a work in progress for sure

Thanks!

looks better, you addressed the #1 concern, #2 is just dependent upon your continued commitment to working on/maintaining the site so that ball is in your court. #3, I guess I was probably too harsh earlier, it is a different/unique offering, not really a rival to the forum or other sites (although there are I think some similar ones out there).

Thanks for getting back to me. I'd rather have harsh feedback than nice feedback so I appreciate it!

So now that im looking for people to upload videos, does anyone have any feedback on the biggest barrier to get you to upload a video? are there not enough people on the site yet? not enough value to separate it from vimeo? any feedback is super appreciated! thanks everyone

I put up a huge update to ShreddedSteeze today. It's a lote more like twitter/instagram for action sports than vimeo. I'd love to hear what you guys think!! I appreciate it.

I quite like the idea, but stepping away from the technical reasons, i think from a neutral point of view it's not something i am likely to use, nor can i see my friends using it or anything similar. There are just too many other options, the big 3 of youtube, vimeo and facebook just have too much of a market share and are something most people are comfortable with.

I know my friends likely wouldn't use it as they are complete beginners and would find it a bit intimidating putting fun edits of them mostly decking it, just starting to link turns etc when every other video on there people are popping corks, hitting kickers and the like. I suppose it depends who you want to attract.

As mentioned i've always thought sites like these have to be kept simple (like yours is) but also offer something NO-ONE else does, a quick idea would maybe get someone qualified (instructor, pro rider etc) to offer some feedback on the riding in the video if requested.......i dunno just try and get something unique.

I could be talking complete b/s but it's just my point of view

It's a good idea, but seriously i do not get everyone's problem with youtube!!!!!
I earn like 120 a year off youtube, it is great and people can comment and like your vids etc, and there is a huge audience!
Way I see it this is kinda a youtube based around these sports but really youtube is easy for me and so many other people that id why I use it.
I reckon it would be a better idea to have a public youtube channel where people send you videos to upload to it.
Well that is my first impression but I will sign up and give it a try although I do not really have any videos to put on I will see if i can dig some out.

Thanks Taskmaster and IndraRipper for the feedback!

Thanks a lot for saying you or your friends wouldn't use it. That's great feedback to hear. You both point out the other video sites and say I still haven't found that thing to offer that no one else does. I'll have to keep iterating and trying to find that unique offering that everyone is excited about. I've got some stuff in the works and some experiments to try out.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely not going to give up until I've got it right
